    Hi there,

    I'm having issues getting into my iphone. A few days ago, I was able to use cyberduck to get in with root/alpine as username/pw. Today when I tried it, it said login failure along with the following message

    I/O Error: Connection failed
    sftp://ip address

    Keyboard-interactive authentication failed.

    I've made sure that my phone is on the network, double checked the ip address, made sure that cyberduck is in sftp mode, made sure that its port 22 as well. in addition, i checked my phone via ifile and found that I don't have the com.ikey.bbot.plis file.

    I'm completely lost since I know for a fact that I didn't change my password (dont even know how).

    The most recent thing that I've done was add source and updated the changes.

    I've also noticed that my phone keeps telling me to set up my visual voice mail settings.

    any help?

    Try going into Settings/ General/ to reset your network settings... Also once you are able to get in you should change your root password... Otherwise your phone will be open to be hacked...
